Sports Mole examines Real Madrid's chances of recording their first victory away at Bayern Munich tomorrow evening.

Bayern Munich will be looking to extend their unbeaten home record against visiting Real Madrid tomorrow evening.

The Spanish side have never managed to win against Bayern in Germany, drawing once and losing on the other eight occasions.

The two teams have met in four previous European Cup semi-finals, with Bayern emerging victorious on three occasions.

Bayern: WWWWLD
R Madrid: WWWDWW

Possible lineups:

Bayern: Neuer; Lahm, Boateng, Badstuber, Alaba; Schweinsteiger, Kroos; Robben, Muller, Ribery; Gomez

R Madrid: Casillas; Arbeloa, Pepe, Ramos, Marcelo; Khedira, Alonso; Di Maria, Kaka, Ronaldo; Benzema
